WWE Survivor Series 2019: 5 Superstars who flopped and 5 who impressed
WWE Survivor Series 2019 witnessed the three brands engaging in a brutal battle for brand supremacy. The NXT Superstars were the first to take the advantage owing to the victory of Lio Rush on the pre-show, followed by the well-deserved win of the Women’s team and Roderick Strong in their respective battles.
The PPV also witnessed Rey Mysterio’s son Dominick helping his father in the no-disqualification match against Brock Lesnar. Both of them teamed up to take down the ‘Beast Incarnate’ but the latter took down both his opponents with successive F5s to retain his title.
Finally, the main-event saw Shayna Baszler defeat Becky Lynch and Bayley to help NXT win at Survivor Series.
In this list, we will take a look at five Superstars who flopped and five who impressed at Survivor Series.
#5 Flopped: Nikki Cross
WWE Superstar Nikki Cross had a decent run in the weeks building up to Survivor Series. She was the last one to stand inside the ring after taking down all her rivals when she arrived on NXT last week. It was expected that Cross would play a crucial role for Team SmackDown in the traditional 5-on-5 Women’s match.
However, that’s not what happened at the PPV. Nikki Cross had a brief moment of spirited performance before she was eliminated by Bianca Belair. She was the first one to be eliminated from the Women’s match.
Although NXT Superstars Candice LeRae and Io Shirai had to initially leave the match after sustaining injuries, they came back later when Rhea Ripley was squaring off against Sasha Banks. Hence, it was still Cross who took the first pin in the match.
Nikki Cross is in the middle of an intense rivalry with Banks. There were a lot of opportunities for WWE creative to tease an altercation between the two. However, the only betrayal in the match saw Asuka attacking her team captain, Charlotte Flair with green mist and causing the latter’s elimination.
